"Books by the Beach" bags for sale
at the La Selva library. These make great book bags, grocery bags, beach bags, diaper bags; you name it! They cost only $3.00 each and all proceeds go towards helping the Friends of the La Selva Beach Library provide programs and services that we would not otherwise get.
The Friends of the La Selva Beach Library have strived to make the Library a central part of the community. Activities, such as the Sand Castle Building Classes, Book Clubs, e-reader workshop and the Summer Program, have brought patrons back to our Library.
The LSB chapter was formed in the fall of 2009 after our branch received drastic cuts in hours. The chapter has been raising funds with local book sales and donations from our community.
The chapter organized a browsing collection of bestsellers for library patrons and underwritten successful workshops. They purchased a bar code duplicating machine to add the additional bar codes required for the self check machines, installed at all branches. Chapter member volunteers utilized the machine to add the bar code to our collection and then the machine was given to the library system for use at other branches.
In 2010 the Friends of LSB Library celebrated the 60th birthday of the branch with readings by children's authors, a reptile show, an exhibit of e-readers and of course, birthday cake.
The Friends continue to find ways of serving the community. They are hoping to underwrite an after school program which may be a book discussion group, a writing group, or perhaps a chess club for school aged children. We are supporting a "Homework Helper" program for all students. We are also researching possibliities for additional workshops and activities for adults. We now have a Movie discussion group, two book groups, and an arm chair travel - share program
The chapter is also pro-active in updating and refurbishing the LSB Library interior.
